Firefox 3.6.3 always exits immediately on CentOS after a normal quit.

more options

Our sysadmins upgraded firefox from 3.5.7 to 3.6.3 a little over a month ago. Since then, when I try to start firefox 3.6.3 after a normal quit from it it immediately exits with status code 1. I can still run firefox 3.5.7 which starts and runs ok. Furthermore, if I quit from 3.5.7, 3.6.3 will then start and run ok. This seems to be the only way to get 3.6.3 to run.

I experienced about the same problem.

What I did was running firefox in "safe-mode" (firefox -safe-mode). I disabled all add-ons. After that I activated the add-ons one-by-one and found out that in my situation the VMWare-add-on was causing the problem.
